An Illinois state representative has publicly raised the possibility that Chicago police officers might be the ones responsible for the unsolved murders of black youths in Chicago.
State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) was interviewed about Chicago crime Tuesday on WCHB-AM in Detroit.
“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children,”
“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing–they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”
When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks it’s possible that police are killing children, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”
Davis called a news conference at her South Side legislative office Friday to says that, while some of her constituents believe that, she does not, nor does she believes she owes anyone an apology.
“My community believes that,” she said. “Should I apologize for my community’s beliefs?”
“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but….” But you did,and under the guise of concern for your community- despicable.
In a July 19 press release, Davis attempted to smooth over hard feelings by praising the Chicago police for their efforts, but she stood by her statements on the Detroit radio program.
“I’m not a detective, I’m not an investigator,” Davis said. “I said my community, many people in my community, based upon their experiences and their knowledge, believe it is possible that some of these murders are committed by our finest. Now, we can’t say that doesn’t happen.”
So black youths are killing other black youths in record numbers. The gang culture absolutely has a “snitches get stitches” mentality,
and she’s surprised that no one’s fingered anyone else in these murders?
She doesn’t know or understand her own organic demographic but feels compelled to comment on it.
Monique Davis is part of the problem, and that problem is race baiting. We’ve seen a lot of pot stirring recently, from the not so Reverend like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and
political activist AG Eric Holder. Davis is absurd, inflammatory and insulting.
